While the report cataloged a range of actions by Ray to safeguard debtor interests, the talk of “rebooting FTX” set the crypto community abuzz.
John Ray III originally proposed a revival strategy for the beleaguered crypto exchange back in January this year.
Reports at that time suggested that FTX had identified $5.5 billion in liquid assets, with Ray coordinating with creditors to formulate a recovery plan.
Despite the absence of updates the following month, the crypto community remained hopeful. Their faith was rewarded in April when reports indicated that the crypto exchange had recuperated $7.3 billion in assets, with plans to resurrect the crypto exchange by the second quarter of 2024.
News of the potential reboot gave FTX’s native token (FTT) a robust boost, resulting in a 13% surge upon the announcement. At the time of writing, FTT retails for $1.11, recording a 10.33% increase in the last 24 hours.
The court document has ushered in a wave of relief and optimism within the cryptocurrency community. Many, including popular crypto influencer DegenSpartan, applaud Ray’s endeavors to resurrect the crypto exchange that owes billions to its creditors.
